   RE: [xml-dev] W3C XML Schema design tools

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


I'm aware of at least one more XSD editor with visual editing facilities,
TIBCO's Turbo XML. I really don't know how good it is these days--I stopped
using it when it was still called XML Authority and had some interesting
shortcomings and bugs. Anyway, see http://www.tibco.com/software/business_integration/turboxml.jsp
for more. I believe they have a trial version available.

For visualisation purposes, Near & Far is still unmatched, IMHO. Then, of
course, it only handles DTDs, makes a mess of any DTD you actually try to
edit with it, and was discontinued years ago. But the nice thing about DTDs
is that a text editor is really all you need.

What I find really surprising is that despite all these defects, XML Spy
seems to be the only choice for most of the people and I can't believe
that there is no alternative, ie no other schema editor th

graphical editing features while being conform to the rec.

Other editors such as <oxygen/> and stylus seem promising (at least from
their documentations)...

What are you using (or advising) to edit your schemas?



Have you ever thought about unit testing XSLT templates?
